Fundación Canal and PHotoESPAÑA are holding Saturday Photoworkshops in the Fundación’s gardens. This will help children and young people to become familiar with, and delve into, the art of photography.

On this occasion, participants will explore the “decisive moment” concept coined by Henri Cartier-Bresson, learn photography techniques like sweeping and unfocusing, and discover how to “capture time” and trap the climactic moment in front of them with their camera.

This way, they will be able to put their observations from many of the shots in the current exhibition “Al descubierto. Obras seleccionadas de The Howard Greenberg Gallery (Discovered. Select Works from The Howard Greenberg Gallery),” which includes some of the most relevant photographers from the past 20 years, into practise.



Age Groups

Participants may choose the morning schedule, from 11:30 to 13:30h, or in the evening, from 17:30 to 19:30h.

The youngest children, from 6 to 9 years of age, will learn the differences between freezing time and capturing movement with sweeps and photographing physical activities and elements such as falling balls and balloons. Groups with children aged 10 through 13 will learn how to use the shutter and play with the image’s composition to figure out the “decisive moment.”



Photographs and audio-visual recordings are taken during the Photoworkshops, intended to disseminate the activity, which means that participants’ images will be taken. Participants will be asked to provide authorisation to take images for this purpose, and to use the photographs taken during the Photoworkshops, for the same purpose, which must be sent in advance to [email protected] or provided on the day of the activity. Download the authorisation HERE.

Considering the very nature of the activity of the Photoworkshops, possible participants are hereby informed that the images taken during said workshop by any of said participants, may foreseeably include the image of some of the other participants. Under no circumstances shall Fundación Canal nor PHotoEspaña conduct any verification in this regard, nor shall they be held liable for how participants may use or disseminate these images. In any event, we advise that participants use the images responsibly and restrict dissemination of images where another person appears strictly to the home.
